Lexus LC Leather Tested

Lexus is known for their high quality standards when, more so with the new LC 500 and nothing is left untested including the car’s leather upholstery. In a recently released global commercial, Lexus shows off the rigorous tests that their leather is put through before receiving a passing grade and utilized in their lineup.

Of course, there’s the French fry test to see how the leather holds up against those delicious, yet oh-so greasy fried tatters if they were to ever fall onto the seats. Then there’s the usual abrasion tests, but with a unique twist. How else will we, as potential customers, know that the Semi-Aniline leather trimmed interior is cactus and tree proof?

Other tests includes UV testing as sunlight over time could damage leather upholstery, waterproof tests and one for how fire retardant the leather is, just in case. Perhaps this may seem a bit excessive, but the Lc500 is trimmed in the finest leather and it’s expected to last, thus the extreme test conditions.

Production of the new Lexus LC500 has already begun, with the first car rolling off the assembly line. It's now only a matter of time until someone spills something or slides into a seat with objest in their back pocket. Then we’ll see if the Lexus leather lives up to our expectations.

I do frequently carry my lion around with me so I'm happy to know it'll stand up to test

Lexus needs to get back to showing more of their history since they have a long track record of quality leather interiors. You can find many examples of 90's Lexus models with leather that today still looks great. Compared to everything else sold in the 90's, its just about the best.

So just to be clear... these seats are water-proof even with that perforated look..?

I really wouldn't try it out and treat it the same if water were to get on the seats. Not something to really take a chance on but I'm sure it does have great resistance
